Exploring The Lovely Cottages Facilities
Pool - Our beautiful lagoon-style saltwater pool will help your cares float away! It's truly an oasis among the trees, and you can often have it to yourself.
Art Gallery - Agnes Water now has a very unique art gallery to add to its many attractions. The “Kent Barton Art Gallery” is an outdoor art gallery with artwork attached to trees and posts around the gardens of The Lovely Cottages Holiday Retreat. These are all artworks of the owner, Kent Barton, a multi award winning Australian artist who has sold thousands of his artworks throughout Australia and around the world for both residential and commercial applications. Wander around the gardens and dams viewing over 60 different pieces of art that capture whimsical images of Queensland’s city, country and beaches.
Fully Equipped BBQ Area - When we say fully equipped, we mean it. Our BBQ area is cozy, quirky, and has all that you need - just bring your food! All plates, cutlery, oil, etc. is supplied for you. You can even leave your washing up right at the BBQ and we will take care of it. How easy can it get?
Boat Parking & Wash Area - We offer a safe and level area for boat parking right beside your cottage. We also have vehicle/boat washdown area and a well-lit filleting bench is also provided for preparing your catch.
Sports Field - If you want a little action during your holiday, check out our athletic area. Perfect for fun family cricket or footy, with goal posts, basketball hoop, and even a grandstand (seats 6) for viewers. Free sports equipment (balls, Frisbees, bats) supplied of course!
Dams - When the water calls, you have a few options. Either travel just 3 klms to the beach, or stay right at The Lovely Cottages and chill out with our ducks and feed the turtles and fish. BYO kayak to explore your own private Lovely Island.
Wildlife - Our guests often see turtles, goannas, echidna, kangaroos, native birds including parrots, red-tailed black cockatoos, kookaburras and owls at The Lovely Cottages.
Campfire Area - How long has it been since you sat around a campfire and laughed with friends and family? Our clean and safe area allows for toasting marshmallows, playing the guitar, and gazing at millions of stars unseen in the city.
